This section is updated regularly with the latest educational developments in Scots.



Closure of the Scuilwab


The Scuilwab was, for many years, Scottish Language Dictionaries’ interactive website in Scots for children and young people. It was latterly maintained by Elaine Webster, SLD’s Outreach and Education Officer. Following Elaine’s retirement in March 2017 and the subsequent appointment by the Scots Language Centre of an Education Specialist, SLD has decided to close the Scuilwab.

Many of the Scuilwab’s most popular resources will be featured as part of the learning and teaching resources offered by the Scots Language Centre. 

If you are trying to find a particular resource from the Scuilwab, contact our Education specialist who may be able to provide the original resource -  or recommend an alternative.
